Are electronically transmitted offer to purchase documents

This answer was rated:

Are electronically transmitted offer to purchase documents (PDF) acceptable in Wisconsin?

Kirk Adams :

Yes, a PDF document electronically transmitted can be legally binding if it is signed (or electronically signed) and sent by the signing party.

Kirk Adams :

The only time one runs into trouble with this is if there's a claim that the person identified on the document did not sign or send the document.

Kirk Adams :

When that occurs, there can be a legal problem trying to prove who sent the email, who signed the document, etc.

Kirk Adams :

However, an offer to purchase sent via email is a legitimate offer and if accepted by the seller, the offer is binding.......

Kirk Adams :

The only "out" for the buyer would be if he/she could prove that the document was not sent by him/her or was not signed by him/her.

Customer:

Thanks for the info.

Kirk Adams :

No problem!
